Correctly and Efficiently Combining Concurrency Abstractions

Actors have become a commonly used abstraction for concurrent and parallel programming in Scala. However, many real-world systems and applications combine actors with other concurrency abstractions, such as futures, or threads and shared-memory synchronization constructs.

This talk explores pitfalls of typical combinations and provides some advice on ensuring their correctness and efficiency.

Philipp Haller has been a member of the Scala team since 2006. His research at EPFL on concurrent programming with race-free actors in Scala has been published in leading conferences, winning a best paper award. He is the creator of Scala's first act.


We will, as always, also be heading to the Slaughtered Lamb pub afterwards.
